Rachel Riley Takes on the Mindsports Challenge in London
Plymouth, United Kingdom (7th October, 2014): Mind Sports International (MSI) are delighted to announce that TV Presenter and Math’s expert, Rachel Riley, has renewed her Ambassadorial role for the company.
Rachel will be kicking off the 2014 – 2015 events season with an appearance at the MSI World Championships at the ExCel Centre, London on 22nd and 23rd November 2014!
Rachel’s role as Ambassador is now in its second year and she will continue to represent the Mind Sports requiring strategy, cognitive and problem solving skills; games such as Scrabble, Chess and Magic: The Gathering, which are played at the MSI events and enjoyed by people from all ages and walks of life. MSI events support and encourage people playing these age-old games to reconnect with their communities, as well as having fun and socialising!
Dave Brannan, CEO of the Mind Sports (International) brand believes there are a great deal of people that have been waiting for this community reconnection, “Mindsports are just that, they encourage interaction in game play where player’s brains are being exercised! Our MSI events help players improve and compete in their intellectual sport of choice; we also hope to ignite interest from those who have previously not considered playing the likes of Chess, Scrabble and Magic: The Gathering.
“We are delighted that Rachel is continuing on our journey and look forward to her being part of our exciting initiatives, particularly in the education sector where we believe these games can aid children and their development.”
Rachel says of her renewed involvement with MSI: “I have been involved with the Mindsports team since 2013, as their Ambassador and presenter at events in Europe and the UK. This coming year I’m looking forward to focusing on encouraging people to become involved in game play where there are important learning benefits but still seriously fun!”
Rachel’s first engagement will be the weekend of the Mind Sports International World Championships being held at the London ExCel Centre, 19th-23rd November 2014 (www.mindsportsevents.com).
